the tern did come but none of the photos got were good.
over at the east(lapwing) hide we were treated to great views of sedge warblers with at least 5 showing constantly but were very flighty and teritorial but i still managed a recognisable shot(thats all i ask)
nothing much more to mention really but a family of mute swans had 4 cygnets on the north moors.
highlights here are:
1 little grebe
8 mute swans(inc.young)
9 common tern
10c sedge warbler
6 cettis warbler(5 singing males)
20c reed warbler
6 reed bunting
at the flashes we got a reserve record.18 greylag geese.the 10 (3 adult 7 young) were still on the sailing pool and i got a few photos
all 10 are shown in this pic.then as we got into the main hide we saw 8 more greylags out in the middle of the flashall the front geese are greylags.
nothing much was there apart from the usual stuff but 3 common terns gave good views doing fly-bys on the hide.
5 common tern
2 stock dove
4 sedge warbler
3 reed bunts
i must mention i did visit sheepwash on 12/05/09 and spent most of the time photographing ruddy ducks and counting baby plastic waterfowl.it was that bad.must say 2 bullfinch and 2 reed buntings were nice to see in an urban park
